POISON – TALK DIRTY TO ME

Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope your week is going well so far. This month, I wanted to shift gears a little and focus on those bands that probably did their makeup better than I did in the 80’s. Today let’s take a trip back to 1986 to the first album by Poison “Look What The Cat Dragged In” for the track “Talk Dirty to Me”.

I remember seeing this video on MTV when it first premiered and then happened to see the album cover after and I remember thinking are those the chicks that were in the video? Needless to say the song grew on me and it became one of the most popular songs off the album and was in heavy rotation on MTV. Poison are often credited for being one of the first bands to start the glam metal movement. The band has noted in interviews that they were heavily influenced by KISS and Aerosmith for their “glam” image.

The album spawned 3 more hits for the band including “Cry Tough”, “I Want Action” and the ballad “I Won’t Forget You”.

The original 4 members reunited in 1996, when guitarist C.C. DeVille returned to the band after he was fired in 1991 for his excessive drug use. DeVille eventually got clean and the band are still touring together as of last summer with no signs of slowing down. “Nothing But a Good Time” with these boys.
